f16, ISO 200, 1/200sec flash used from the right.
Chasing me is a hobby to spiders - see they always know who is and is not afraid of them and make shure those that are get a good chasing!
Still when he rested for a few moments I got a chance to try the setup at some (around) 3:1 macro - and its hard!
I think I either need a different diopter setting for this sort of work or my diopter might be slightly wrong in setting (or I just shot badly
) because I did get around 38 shots of his back and 2 of his face! Getting the focus on the eyes was anything but easy.
Also the flash had to be on the right as in the hotshoe shadowing (working distance only a few cms) would be a problem with such a long lens - I hope to have a bracket soon so that the flash can be above the setup more rather than to one side where it gives thick shadows to one side.
Any comments/crits welcome - thank you
